It's nice to know when your soldier son comes home to visit, there are things that never change. He left his post yesterday afternoon & drove through the night to get home. . . after a huge breakfast & hot shower he's off to sleep for a few hours! Clothes left on the floor where he always leaves them! It's especially sweet to have him here in light of the shootings a Fort Hood . . . my heart breaks for those families . . .

. . . my Carolina home! Let's talk about the food shall we? I'm a little spoiled when comes to seafood. Red Lobster just isn't the same. These shrimp were caught last week by my amazing Brother in Law Woody! The flounder was caught the day before. Sweet Tea isn't anything new, it's a standard for every meal.
You never have your breakfast cereal without blueberries. Picked in June & frozen for daily use. Strawberries too. In the backyard, we have pecan trees. It's a lot of work to shell the pecans but you can't imagine the difference in the flavor from the bags in the grocery store.
I could go on & on, but I'm just getting hungry, LOL! Enjoy the seee-food! Carolina Sue in St Lou
